May not be "authentic" chinese food that other reviewers are used to but is tasty, cheap, quick, hot and fresh with friendly service. We love this place and visit every time we are in Amsterdam. Great people watching!!

The food is so so. It's very basic and perhaps daily fare. It's definitely not gourmet nor distinctive. It's a Chinese meal for the uninitiated. Also, only a few tables outside on the alley to eat as a group. A few bar type counters inside. The couple is very nice, and the food was fast and hot. I think they... More

The place is a cheap eat. 10 euros you get a full meal and something to drink. The location is incredibly central and the service is quick. Sadly, the food is not really worth visiting this place. Fried rice with eggs is steamed white rice somehow put together in a "fried-like-fashion" after cooking. Shrimp curry was a lot of veggies... More

Not sure what kind of Chinese food the good commenters are used to but this place serves way below average quality food. Don't waste your time.

Real Chinese food, the material is very fresh. We accidentally found This family restaurant. This is one of the best outside China for a fast ordinary meal. The price is very reasonable. This is the cheapest and most suitable to our stomach. We ordered 3 same dish. They cooked one by one , which is very rare for a economical... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
